Katherine Heigl - Katherine Heigl Turns To Crowd-funding Website For New Film
Actress Katherine Heigl is calling on fans to invest $150,000 (£93,750) to help complete production on her new movie Jenny's Wedding.
Heigl and director Mary Agnes Donoghue have turned to the crowd-funding platform Indiegogo.com to raise the funds needed for post-production costs.
In a video for the fundraising effort, Heigl says, "We've teamed up with Indiegogo because we are trying to raise money to finish the film and we could really use your help and we have lots of really fun, exciting perks."
Jenny's Wedding chronicles the story of a woman who surprises her conservative parents by telling them she wants to marry her girlfriend.
The campaign has raised $5,980 (£3,738) with 44 days remaining.
A portion of the proceeds raised will benefit the Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (Pflag) charity in Cleveland, Ohio, where the film was shot.
